From a spine tingling trip back in time to World War One with The Roses’ own production, The Hospital, to a swashbuckling adventure with Tinkerbell And The Pirate Fairy, there’s something planned for all ages and interests.

The Sooty Show arrives directly from CITV on Saturday April 5 for izzy wizzy fun and games with a sold-out crowd to kick start the holiday period, and those who missed out on tickets should not despair as there are still some available for the retelling of Rudyard Kipling’s classical tale, Jungle Book, on Tuesday April 15, featuring enchanting puppetry that children will adore.

The Roses have been working with the Roses’ Young Performers and members of the community to bring The Hospital to life on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 April. Hear the true stories of Tewkesbury hospital during various immersive WW1 scenarios, all based on real experiences and re-enacted through song, dance and drama.

The film programme includes critically acclaimed The Lego Movie (April 18/19/21) featuring some of Hollywood’s most recognisable voices, Mr. Peabody And Sherman (April 7/8/9), fantasy adventure Tinkerbell And The Pirate Fairy (Monday April 4), and the life-affirming story of The Book Thief (18/21/22/23 April).

With such a varied programme available this holiday, there is no time like the present to get younger people more involved and interested in theatre.

Tickets for all events can be purchased from The Roses Theatre Box Office on 01684 295074 or online at www.rosestheatre.org
